I didn't crack a beer until before that last TD. Sorry, everyone.
This forward pass thing is Groovy Greg! Your right Marsha.... you're Keen!
"Captain, over here, I've found someth... AHHHH!!!!!!"
^This sums up the whole game right here
Come on. We need 28-0 this quarter to have any shot of going to the playoff.
Send me what you’re something
I am not a pessimist but, I think that ship sailed at the start of the half. Committe just wanted something else to say besides purdue, now they have it.
God > Family > Buckeyes football
Meh. Game isn't over. If they're into punishing teams for poor quarters they should punish the shit out of Alabama too
The browns suck and always will. Baker is a huge douche too. May a drunken mod edit this signature because it hurts his butt
Your right, game isn't over.
Not to be a defeatist or anything, but Alabama doesn't get punished for that sort of thing. TEacher's pet.
Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege.
Tyrion: A wedding.
Drake sent that out in August.
Not sure why the DVs
they have struggled through 3 quarters, the committee will not put Ohio State above Oklahoma.
Let's go Buckeyes
Focusing on Penn State !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

That was the longest 3rd quarter ever.
Number 1 rule in life: always beat That Team Up North.
I'm just happy its finally over.
Northwestern took the momentum to start the third quarter but we took it back in a big way. Time to finish strong.
Let’s get to Pasadena
Read my entire screen name....
If that's the consolation prize, it's a helluva prize.
Until you see the opponent.
Yay! I'm so excited to see us play Washington if we can hang on and beat the mighty Huskies! This is what the great recruits sign up for!
GTH is on it for the BCG with the threads! Right on the money with the close and open.
Got to score on this drive..something
I'm comforted to know that the entire Northwestern team, their extended family, and the local hospital residents can be on the field when OSU snaps the ball and the refs won't see fit to throw a flag.
But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. So much darker. And so much madder. And so much better. -Dr. Who, "Love and Monsters"
They are too busy zeroing in on Buckeye infractions to care about a few dozen extra Wildcats on the field.
C'mon Buckeyes, get some roses baby
Alright, lets finish strong. Put our foot on their throats and dont let them breath!!
Win the game and know the reason why. Rose Bowl, let’s get there.
36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3"
Haskins really is a bit of a truck
It’d be great if we would let the best quarterback in school history throw the damn ball and stop forcing a running game that isn’t working
Gotta outscore NW this qtr.
Go Buckeyes! You can do it!
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
Seriously, it's ok to stop talking playoffs now ...

Calling 45-21 final Bucks
Anyone think we should play somewhere other than Indy?
Other than US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, there really isn’t another venue to host it. We’re not playing an outdoor game in Cleveland, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philly, DC, NYC or Green Bay in December.
I don't know, I think Soldier field would be pretty badass
Problem is that the powers that be will insist on an indoor game. There are only a couple of other options in Big Ten country, and I think most of the league would object to a game in Detroit.

Put it in the Shoe.
It's a great venue and city.
Why? Indy is great
"You win with people" — Woody Hayes
Haskins is like our whole team. Literally.
Haskins is going to win the Heisman and OSU still won't make the playoff. Then he'll go in the top 5 of the draft. Sigh.
A field goal, really? I guess not.
Saw that coming
JUST WHAT nw needed.
we need need to use that Urban meyer ass shot for a Meme
Meyer seems to have zero confidence in this team.
Well, special teams should get into the suckiness too. And I can see why Meyer's head hurts. Mine does too.
Still don't have a kicker huh.
LOL. we f!cking suck! clap, clap. We f!cking suck! clap, clap. Repeat chorus.
Well boys and ladies, we are playing for the Rose Bowl.
“I intend to make Georgia howl.” General William Tecumseh Sherman
Seems NW wants it more.
I have no issue with the site... its less than 2 hours from Homebase!
ok its more... but still less than NW to INDY
still don't have an O line tonight
My wife says she have kicked it that well. Just not as far.
We aren’t a top 5 team, largely due to a below average coaching staff. We beat Michigan and on to next year.
I've been saying this for a while: the most exciting part of this December / January will be coaching staff changes. And if there aren't any dramatic changes, we'll know Meyer has fully entered wind-down-the-clock mode.
Just do your assignment and play penalty free football from here on out..need 2 more TDs..at a minimum..
this team has pulled a hammy in 2nd half
I dont often hate, but when I do...I hate _ichigan Wolverines. Stay victorious my friends.
Parris is hurt. Why has that not been mentioned. Has been out for 2 quarters
On kick coverage
Seriously we don't deserve to win this game and we don't act like we want it or care.
Kicker steps were wrong. Knew it was a miss before the snap
Still not a fan of our running plays. They hand it to the RB when he’s an inch from the Oline.
I am trying to stick with my mindset going into TTUN, which was a win against them would be make for a successful season regardless of what happened afterwards.
But damn am I having a hard time with that tonight.
Fresno and Boise is much less maddening... and yet we’re still up 10 in spite of everything that has happened since halftime.
hold left tackle
Just keeping it close enough so NW ***believes*** they have a chance!
we probably thought this was going to be a cake walk
Should have been.
What happened to the o line tonight?
That's the point, they are non existent on run blocking
No clue the ball was coming
It seems that in every aspect, OSU just does not have that crisp edge. Better teams don't have that kick blocked or messed up. Something needs to change in the offseason in regards to discipline.
OSU trying to make it as close as possible.
Fire Schiano. Fire Grinch
This game is starting to feel like an upset.
I'm curious to know if the rest of the league thinks Northwestern has been getting away with crap from the officials all season. The complaints about officials here are usually overstated. Not tonight.
Team Talent: 2nd (behind Bama)
Team Coaching: ~70th
Team Referee Friendliness: Dead Last
Actually, according to stars OSU is ahead of Bama in talent this year.
Hate to say it but this is exactly what Fitz planned for.
Screw this game
Do I have to put something down here?
Love this defense
Thorson carving them up again
Of course it's PI.......
NW moving the ball at will... Joke... Such a Joke, WTF!!!!
One man that has a mind and knows it can always beat ten men who haven't and don't.
The only true worry we should have about this 2019 team is this:
Why is Sevyn Banks wearing number 12?
Now cue up the pass interference
WOW, how bad is our secondary.....
Wade just wanted to hold hands.
Wade doesn't even try to act like the flag isn't on him anymore
Imagine my shock. Defense was confused. Again.
Jesus fuck this team is wholly average at best for significant periods of time
Where is the guy that said Thorson had a weak arm? I know you're on here somewhere.
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
He actually has underthrown a lot of balls tonight.
We’re losing this game. Hello Citrus Bowl.
Except for the pass game, the team is playing inspired football. It's like they knew the playoff was already out of reach
Not digging the break dont bend defense
Is it possible that Urban over emphasizes the Michigan game? We play like crap 75% of the time outside of that game - for the past four years

Wow. Another blatant hold
Sweet, missed dat one
Good stand by D
They’re just not going to call a hold on northwestern no matter what
Glad I'm not the only one thinking that...
Shouldn't matter. It's Northwestern and we were unable to make a statement.
What are the folks who were talking about style points doing right now?
Downgrading my expectations to "Jesus just don't freaking lose" status.
No one could seriously want this team with a horrible defense and bad coaching staff, erratic run game, and iffy special teams in the playoff. Who do we seriously think we could play competitively with?
With our receivers, Haskins and a month to prepare? Anyone in the country
Call a mf’ing hold on the Wildcats already or so help me God
Hard to believe that Akron beat this team...
Californian by birth, South Carolinian by the grace of God, Buckeye for life.
Hard to believe we beat Michigan or Penn State
False start on the RT. But it's Northwestern, so we won't call it.
"Smokey, my friend, you are entering a world of pain."
I just watched that 3rd down play. The tackle started backing up before the ball was snapped. You should be a referee.
Score a TD on this drive and put it away!

They held him, looked at the ref as he let go and stood there expecting the flag that never came lol
played up to our potential for one game this year vs decent or above average competition, no playoffs is the result you gon get
Yeah, but what a game to play up to our potential in
I would have never thought this team (NW) could hang, but when I heard they are 10-1 against the spread this AM, I thought maybe for a brief minute, but thought no way we are rolling now, welp, we def need to march and score here to help out the D.
Winning the big ten with Schiano, Grinch, Johnson, and Davis on staff, is just a ridiculous concept to me. If we can pull this out, we did it in spite of the worst defensive coaches in recent history.
Johnson is the diamond in the rough. His group is keeping us in this game.
Taver Johnson the CB coach.
They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
Give Kerry Coombs a blank check
This team has turned me into a Saturday alcoholic. But dammit I still love them and going to cheer them until the end.
It feels like we are down by 3 TDs. All the old, bad habits are back. 0% chance for the playoffs.
Pain of Discipline
Pain of Regret
Take Your Pick
This season has been so painful to watch. So close to just going to bed. I guess this beer I just opened will keep me up.
So we have a pass only qb, so we could go quick pace, and we dont. We should throw, but we dont enough. We recruit D that cant hold still when required and cant turn a head to save a life. We have a coachibg staff that shreads the best D in cfb but forget how to call a play 1 week later. Did I miss something?
Hard to believe Akron beat NW.
Harder to believe that we may not beat this team
HOw bad is our coaching starting with Meyer ... this one is 100% on Meyer. If we would have opened up the offense from the start we would have won by a wide margin ... Meyer choked again and called it conservatively and allowed NW back in it ...
At this point I'll just be happy with a win. Smh.
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes
The amount of pass interference penalties that we commit is staggering. Wade looked like crap that series.....
Haskins is 28 for 34 averaging 10.9 per attempt yet for some reason we have ran it 38 times for a 2.5 yard average. How much you want to bet we run it the next two plays...
You lost that bet
C'mon Bucks. Make a play!
Fair catch the line drive, nice.
Don't agree with the fair catch at the 8. That's play not to lose, like we've been watching the entire half.
LMAO they're still running it!
Oh, wonderful f%cking play there.
Haskins 28/34 371 and 3 with 1 int
running game 38 96 1td and 1 fumble....
why are we fucking around!!!
Get Weber the hell out of the game before he puts it on the ground again.
Throw the damn ball.
This team is so full of holes and inconsistencies I don’t really think they’ve made any real improvements the entire year. That’s coaching folks it just is. Penalties, special teams, offensive line, linebackers, defensive backs....we would have been boat raced in the playoffs. Don’t really think they ever got it together from the very beginning, they’ve just hung on all year...barely.
This Haskins kid is pretty good.
I can’t imagine this season without him....
I can. Our season would have ended last week and we would probably have 3+ loses.
Well, get ready... cause we probably won't have him next year.
Less runs, more passes
Please just throw the ball
Now let's run Weber wide again.....
I know, right?
Outside run is a guaranteed 3 yard loss
GOOD THINGS KEEP HAPPENING WHEN WE PASS HOW ABOUT WE KEEP PASSING GD IT
every play should be a pass figure out how to run block for pasadena
63 fucking yards on a rope... shame we wasted this kid's talent.
63 yard gain that'll end up in a field goal because our line can't run block.
Good. Now make another play.
Remember when there was concern that Northwestern would chew up the clock on scoring drives?
Touchdown - :51
Touchdown - 1:37
Touchdown - 3:24
Field Goal - 1:50
Alright! First and 10. Run the ball for -3 yards. 2nd and 13. Pass the ball for 60 yards. Huh
wow... that TD was almost as good as a run play
I see a pattern here.
Just award him the Heisman. He’s been phenomenal for this team this year.
Haskins has to do more than any other Heisman candidate to carry a team. He certainly is THE MVP.
Dwayne's mobility has been huge tonight
DH went from looking like a statue for 10 games to showing decent mobility the last 3. Amazing. Coaches must have been scared to get him hurt. Cruz kid has had some fire inside him the last 3 games
Haskins. The truth.
And now for another round of commentary on how Oklahoma's defense sucks but their QB can beat anyone.
Dwayne is a special player for sure, really came a long way this year. His scrambling has gotten way better.
Haskins should win the heisman for carrying this team all year
Just throw the ball... quit trying to be cute. We are essentially a Big 12 team this year. It works,
This is a passing offense. Everyone realizes it except the coaches. That is their identity but they try and force it to be something it isnt.
My love for Haskins is approaching Troy Smith/JT Barrett level.
I was there halfway through the season. Knew this would be a special season for QB play. That's why it sucks so hard that our defense has been whatever it is they are.
2.5 per rush sucks
I'll work for helmet stickers!
A pick six would be really nice right now
Dwayne Haskins and these senior WR’s!! Fun to watch!!
I'm Ray, I quit smoking with Chantix
I started in the third quarter.
and I'm gonna start smoking! :-P
Should be 3 passes for every”keep them
Haskins has been awesome all season, but ever since he's learned how to create time for himself, he's gone to another level.
Let's hope we just win this game and go to California. Killed any hope I had left ay the natty.
"If you take it to em and you keep takin it to em , hell there's no question whose gonna win" W.W.H
This is who we are this year. It’s pretty good. It’s just not great. We all hoped for great.
At least we got good and a well-timed great last week.
If we had a more typical OSU defense, we would be good enough for the CFP. Urban needs a new Defensive Coordinator
Our defense is better than Oklahoma’s. Our offense could be as good as Oklahoma’s, but the coaches can’t get their heads out of their butts
Go get your money Dwayne! Without Haskins we are probably an 6-6 team this year.
Man, never saw a Buckeye team who cant get out of their own way consistently
Get a stop here defense and win a Big Ten Championship
C'mon Buckeye D. Get a stop.
On a real note... why would the committee not wanna put Ohio state in. Imagine this: the Top 4 Heisman contenders, all QBs, all going at it in the playoffs. Man that’s just fun right there.
Need dem 2 SEC teams tho
Haskins for 500. Do it, Urban/Day.
Our offense is pass to open up the run. Plain and simple. Play to your strengths. We pay these coaches millions of dollars to execute the obvious. And they still struggle.
I stepped away for one minute, came back confused to what I thought was a punt only to find out it was a pass from Haskins
Haskins tonight - 30/36, 443 yards, 4 TD's, 1 INT.
Just an awful performance, even if we win. Poor play calling and awful execution.
For the 3rd time, let him throw
It’s a shame we don’t use the Haskins and great WRs more frequently instead of running it backwards 40 times. Shouldn’t expect any different after these past years
Dixon is a story...UFM loves him oops...favoritism.
I am sure going to miss Haskins next year.
Herbie still talking about Georgia. Like driving it home talk, emphatic about Georgia getting in, Reese tried to calm it with "there will be a look of boos for the two same sec teams in" Herbie says "I don't care". LOL, neither do I herbs neither do I. Funny cause I just flipped over there for like 15 secs during commercial.
He is consistent. Did the same thing with Michigan back in '06
Theres a reason Herby moved out of Columbus. Prolly got tired of all the bricks thrown at his head for his bullshit commentary.
Wow, who would’ve ever thought our skill position players were our most obvious tactical advantage? Just everyone but our own staff.....huh.
I hate this new fair catch rule. Just put the ball on the 25 and be done with it
I’ll tell you what ...... Dwayne Haskins deserves the Heisman. He doesn’t deserve this defense.
As much screwing around as we've done tonight, this is now a season high point total vs the NW defense.
Refs trying to make it look even now
If we get a stop.... I expect us to just run run run run punt.... Burn clock... Snooze... Fuck this
We playing prevent defense now?
Hard to believe Haskins didn't make the final cut for that QB award.
He won it ! Where were you?
Yes, for conference -- and he deserved it. Didn't make the top 5 nationally for the Doak Walker Award or the Maxwell, or anything.
The worst coached team - ever - in big time sports.
But - and it's a big BUT - a 1st round NFL draft pick at QB who will be a Heisman finalist in NYC and a team that delivered an epic, all-time ass whipping of a vaunted TTUN that thought it was playoff-bound. So, some real good with the awful. Inexplicable covers it, I think.
An 11-1 soon to be conference champ is the worst coached team ever in big time sports?
PG <3 PG
I think when you consider a. our talent and b. the fact the *same* things have plagued this team all season and c. that no one, regardless of their play, ever seems to earn any time on the bench - yes, worst coached big-time college team I've ever seen.
Yeah like youre the definitive voice on anything.
Browns fans would like a word with you.
Going to have to just air it out for touchdowns every time
Hope that the old farts went to bed early and missed the third quarter and we were that close to Oklahoma
Gonna need another two TDs while holding them to zero
We need to get the ball back. Come on defense!
Serious question...do we beat Washington?
If the coaches and players are mentally checked in, yes.
I don't think it's the players...our coaching has been disappointing all year except during the MeatChicken game. It's like each week we play not to win except that week we played to embarrass them and we should play that way each week
If they want to? Yes, by however much they decide they want to. Washington is terrible.
Washington might put up 59 on this defense if we play like this.... But we should still win
Too many variables right now. I would say yes, but it would be closer than we would like it.
The team we’ll be playing with is going to be mostly underclassmen, so the effort is likely going to be there.
Sheffield's first play of the year?
Yeah. I think its very clear why Bama didn't play him. He has great speed but his cover skills aren't very good. Most of the time he is running with the receiver but just dosn't make a play.
The one thing our D has done well all game is third down stops.
NW getting ready to score again!
Awesome to see Tommy T make a play, remember the vid when he committed.
Gonna be good...real good!!!!!!!!!
How much was the pass rush from Bosa covering up our very bad secondary?
Sheffield got lucky. He wasn't even lined up when they snapped it.
Great play Okudah! Heavy dose of Dobbins coming to close it!
I just had a thought. After seeing that dtone camera angle. Does that idiot thing get in qb s way often?
I just had a thought. After seeing that drone/wire camera angle. Does that idiot thing get in qb s way often?
Thought that was the camera view on the ref’s hat? I could be wrong though
Good stop. Now another 7 on the board to steal their souls and force the pass
Not sure we want that. We haven't been slowing down their passing game much.
Perfect tech by Okudah. Absolutely perfect - I’m in awe
Time to take time off the clock for the BIG championship. Nothing to gain by risking.
Smelling the roses now. Not the game I hoped for, but this is the team we have. Let’s go out there and win.
Ohio State is no longer national...we are regional. Good enough for the B1G but nothing else.
This take makes no fucking sense
We once again had the highest rated game of the season and more in the top 10
We usually have 3 or 4 in the top 10 including almost always the highest
Let him vent.
That’s like.... your opinion man
I almost feel the opposite. Like, I think we could compete against the other big national teams. But line up enough teams from the cornfields and/or rust belt and we’ll drop one of them.
I feel more comfortable with Dobbins in there this game.
Of course. Holding.....
Well we are about to break the vegas line...-14.5
Victor can’t hold on to ball, but he can a DB?
Wow. Another bullshit call
Why isn't that PI on NW? We would have been called for that.
How was that no PI
Because it was not OSU...
I love that they called the hold on Victor when they misses Sheffield getting undressed on the first NW touchdown.
110% correct on this, I couldn't believe they didn't call that.
That would be PI if we were on defense.
Olave is just good, throw the rock his way.
They got a first down earlier with straight ahead runs; they go wide and lose 5 yards.
Does Day ever pay attention to what's worked and what hasn't?
Please give me some more sideline runs that go no where
Running wide is a guaranteed 3 yd loss
Come on throw the ball down the field
We have to score more points
what a throw
If i could change my username, i would
Gus Johnson has really been getting on my nerves this year, whether he's just spewing dumb crap such as a "no look pass," or UM and his health when Harbaugh is on the other side literally with his hands on his knees and head between his legs. Even in this game alluding to Urban's health as soon as we go up 24-7. I'm just ranting at this point, but wow, first season I've ever been upset with Gus calling a game.
Another sideways run. With no blocking. Can anybody explain that? I mean run Campbell on a jet if you're going to run that.
Another run backwards, just useless
i dont think that sweep has worked once
You know the old saying...If at first you don't succeed, try 5 more times.
Olave is the next Devin Smith
I love Chris Olave!
That's a targeting call if we're the team on D.
Way to go Haskins! You are a bright spot for this team week after week.
Amazing how good our receivers became now that we have a quarterback that can throw
They get to invite relatives on the field to play D, no way we would ever get a target in this game.
After looking at the offensive play selection especially the run, starting to have doubts about Day
What an effing pass
Olave!! Dude has stick em!! TD Dobbins!!
Seriously - why isn't Olave playing all the time? Were 2 TDs and a blocked punt not enough to say a guy has earned it? Why would you have Victor out there, earning a holding penalty to go with his drops when Olave is a huge stud?
Haskins is sooooooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!!
Chance Young is going full beast mode tonight
there are voters who already cast their heisman vote. What a shame.
And all of a sudden, we're ahead by more than the point spread.
That was pretty
Oh come on, get him 1 more yard.
Please, please, pretty please...
Just give Dwayne the Heisman, and that is no joke. Best player in college football, hands down.
That’s a future NFL QB right there, my goodness
Dwayne Haskins for Heisman??
Thanks for the memories, Dwayne. Go get paid.
That's a pass an OSU quarterback hasnt been able to make in a long time. Haskins is amazing
Hit em with the heisman pose Dwayne.
Going to be a shame this arm talent was wasted this year.
499. Okay an interception by D here to get him over 500
He is really at 499? I missed it. Man I hope he gets 500
Please let him break 500
there's always next game
34/41, 499 yards, 5 TD's, 1 INT.
Urban Meyer your Buckeyes just won the B1G for the second year in a row ~ what are you doing next?
We're going to Bob Evans ... down on the farm!
I don't see how Haskins can't win the Heisman. I know he won't, but come on. He's putting up these numbers against Big Ten defenses. We probably lost a couple more games without him
He's totally carved up the two best defenses in the Big Ten.
Haskins puts the game away, Gus & Joel start up the Urban Retirement X rumors
Damn media needing to kill airtime.
Haskins with the Heisman pose. Love it
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
We need to score another touchdown
Keep scoring Urban
Thanks to Victor. Paris misses 1,000
So, will Urban break them or run out the clock.
Looked like was going to go for another against Michigan. Went to V formation after the O line injury. A lot more on the line here.
If we get into the CFP (over Norte Dame, it’s possible), it will be because of Dwayne Haskins.
lol Notre Dame is a 100% lock
Sorry, but no way we get in in front of ND. They didn't loose.
Come on....just a jet sweep or something. He deserves that 500.
Gotta get him 500!!! Come on now coach.
Please let Haskins throw for 1 more yard
Klatt has it right when he says the committee looks at the low point and not the high points of the season for a team.
I had to mute FOX for their commentary. Ill never listen to Gus again.
Love how no one ever mentions Oklahoma needing OT to beat Army at home when the OSU vs Oklahoma debate comes up.
500! 500! let him do it!
Oh come on, 1 yard
Cheers to the B1G Champs, fellow posters. I love winning this game.
Back to back championships feel damn good, even though it was awfully frustrating for big chunks.
Lets enjoy Pasadena.
They couldn't get him 1 more yard???
Haskins should call a fake kneel and throw a bomb to Campbell
That would probably hurt his heisman chances honestly lol
Nicholas l Ernst
wow i just saw dobbins and weber in the game at the same time...on the kneel down
Gonna celebrate :) Championship is a championship. BIG champs!
Got what I wanted, a win (and beat the spread too).
But they make it look hard
There is no better QB (or player) in the country than Dwayne Haskins. Nuff said.
Injury risks against an angry team not worth running it up.
The only thing that would make this better is if someone finds McMurphy and smears shit in his face. Fuck you Brett.
